Beautiful summer wedding ceremony and reception near Guildford, Surrey filmed from the air with our drone

At the end of May we had the privilege of filming a stunning countryside wedding in the breath-taking surroundings of the Surrey Hills near Guildford. 
The wedding ceremony itself took place at the idyllic St Martha-on-the-Hill church in Chilworth, Surrey which we actually photographed from the air over 4.5 years ago in December 2011 – see the photo below. As it happens, the couple found this image on Google when searching for iconic images of the church which then led them to commission us to film their wedding – and they even used this image on the front of their ceremony booklets which was so touching for us to see!

After capturing video footage of the couple walking out of the church, mingling with their guests and slowly walking down the hill through the woodlands, we followed the celebrations to the nearby Barnett Hill Hotel where we took further aerial footage of the guests mingling on the lawn at the back of the hotel.

As the drone was always kept a safe distance from the guests, they were able to enjoy their day undisturbed, and as a result the footage almost feels like a fly on the wall documentary of the whole event … or a ‘fly in the sky’ documentary if you like! After we had presented the clients with their completed aerial video, they kindly shared this testimonial with us: 
“My wife’s family bought us the video for a wedding present. We really didn’t know how it would turn out but it’s now one of our favourite mementos of the whole day! The panoramic views outside the church and the reception are fantastic – marvellously detailed, rock steady and amazingly broad! David was so professional we hardly knew we was there, and he integrated himself smoothly with our other (stills) photographer.” 
Do you know someone who is getting married in a spectacular location who loves the idea of having an unobtrusive aerial film produced of their big day? Perhaps you would like to give them a professionally captured and edited aerial film as a wedding present? Drop us a line today and we’ll be happy to discuss the idea with you!
